So I have traditional light bulbs and traditional on / off switches. Plan to replace the bulbs with Yeelight 1S smart bulbs to work with Homekit. Questions below

1. Will traditional switches work as usual with bright light? Suppose my father (who doesn’t have an iPhone and therefore doesn’t have a homekit control) can turn the lights on and off as usual?
2. In connection with the above question, suppose we left the colors of the red bulb and left them unintentionally. Can my father adjust it (again, he has no control over the homekit) to the usual color (white) using traditional switches? Or should I buy smart switches too?
3. Is it necessary for the switches to be permanently “On” for Homekit to work on them?
